We mostly use the internet nowadays, even children at their very young ages are hooked on to the gadgets and the internet. They even have their own YouTube stars and sensations. Indeed, Ryan of Ryan Toys Review was recorded by Forbes as YouTube’s highest-earning star, raking in $22m.

A seven-year-old boy who reviews toys has been revealed as YouTube’s highest-earning star, raking in $22m (£17.3m).

The young boy was asked by the NBC, why kids liked watching his videos, Ryan – who is now eight – replied: “Because I’m entertaining and I’m funny.”

Every toy that he features on his blog was instantly selling out making him get more sponsors, doubling his net worth. 

When you gave your smartphone to your child and they started to play random videos on YouTube, did they get a penny from watching them? Aside from gadgets being harmful to mental health and eyesight if they’re spending more time on the internet, maybe they can learn some words and things from it. The video creator will surely earn when your kiddo watches the videos, what about your child? Absolutely not.

On the other hand, old vloggers may be lucky as they already built a strong fan base before this industry hit the market so hard, but things are not in favor of new YouTube vloggers. Huge numbers of them are struggling to promote their contents. Simply because there are too many of them competing now. They’re having a hard time gaining real followers that will support them from start to end. It becomes a competition where things are really unfortunate and makes them lose their passion.

As we stand on the threshold of the next wave of the digital content revolution with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), this digital content vulnerability could become more than problematic unless we transform the basic platform that we use.

What if we combine it with Blockchain?

What if we tokenise everything?

What if we use the platform, VIBRAVID

VibraVid is a decentralised online sharing platform built on the TRON blockchain that’s aiming to become a decentralised answer to the industry giants like YouTube. The platform aims to transform how consumers interact with digital content and in the process increase the revenue potential for content creators.

VibraVid aims to deliver content directly from creators to users, thereby eliminating the presence of intermediaries in the form of record companies, labels, physical media manufacturers, banking organisations, etc. As a result, internal reserves for revenue creators of content will be significantly increased.  

In the VibraVid Platform, both content creators and fans/listeners can earn money with the innovation of Blockchain.

What is BeatzCoin? 

BeatzCoinBeatzCoin is a cryptocurrency that has value, just like Bitcoin (BTC), and is used in transactions and functions in the VibraVid platform. It is built on the Tron (TRX) network. With Tron, MainNet will be used for all cryptocurrency transactions made between users. Transactions made within the platform, between wallets have been tested to be confirmed in 3-5 seconds. BeatzCoin can be bought and used to pay for video and audio content, marketing and advertising by users, creators and advertisers. You can also earn BeatzCoin through airdrops, bounties, content creation, publishing, promotion, sales, rentals, events, event tickets, fan merchandise, tips, crowdfunding donations and staking. 

BeatzCoin was endorsed by the famous blockchain influencer John McAfee, who is an outspoken member of the team. They have recently completed the private beta test and will launch the app publicly as early as July 31st.

Making money is now easy, but remember, just because you made a lot of money doesn’t mean you know how to spend or invest it well. Do not lose faith because you’re struggling with platforms such as YouTube, there is an alternative, VibraVid. Continue making great content, continue positively influencing people’s lives, but get what you deserve, be a pioneer with VibraVid.

UTU – the first African Blockchain Startup to announce IDO on Binance DEX

Published

on

AE Ventures

PRAGUE / NAIROBI / VADUZ, LIECHTENSTEIN Sep 20 2019Æ Ventures, an investment company that provides initial funding, acceleration, and advisory support to blockchain projects, today announced that Starfleet graduate UTU Technologies, a Nairobi-based company building a trust infrastructure for the sharing economy on æternity blockchain, is launching an IDO (Initial DEX Offering) on Binance DEX.

UTUUTU will launch its IDO on Binance DEX at Æternity Universe One, the first conference dedicated to the Æternity Blockchain’s growing ecosystem taking place September 20-21, 2019 in Prague. While IDOs are a fairly new concept, they are growing in popularity due to their independent nature, as they are independent of Binance and are 100 percent self-organized by the token issuer. UTU’s decision to employ this new funding measure is rooted in the company’s core values of trust and innovation.

UTU delivers proprietary trust recommendations to decentralized applications with the aim to disrupt anonymous star ratings and reviews, which are the current standard for discerning trustworthiness of digitally contracted service providers. The goal is to transform the online services industry by tokenizing the acquisition of users and data and creating a safe space to securely store and govern data access while providing monetary incentives for endorsing trusted service providers. UTU’s technology runs on a graph database, powered by machine learning, that is adapted for each user’s unique preferences and trust model. Therefore, in operation, UTU’s API seamlessly serves up personalized recommendations for trusted service providers on sharing platforms to drive conversion, satisfaction, retention and viral acquisition.

UTU’s technology is particularly useful for establishing trust for P2P e-commerce, P2P lending, and online professional services. For example, fintech platforms can use UTU to evaluate credit risks with little or no formal data, helping them to better understand the correlational risk to their portfolio. Online professional services like content and copywriters can use UTU to build trust and relationships, therefore driving conversion up by 20 percent, satisfaction up by 10 percent and they can generate up to 30 invites per new user.

“From the onset, our mission has been to bring real-world trust to the digital world; and we believe conducting an IDO is the next step up toward expanding this vision,” said Jason Eisen, CEO of UTU Technologies.

UTU will also showcase its technology at this year’s Æternity Universe One conference. This milestone highlights UTU’s development since participating in Æ Ventures’ Starfleet Accelerator program where they received $200,000 USD in investment and went on to win the Startup World Cup at the Trescon Global AI Show.

“The Æ Ventures team is very proud of UTU’s success through our Starfleet accelerator program,” said Nikola Stojanow, CEO of Æ Ventures. “We share UTU’s vision of providing a safer, more trusted digital world, built around relationships; and we are happy to support their efforts to build a solid blockchain ecosystem in Africa.”

The element of continuity and change remains hinged on education. Therefore, even though there is evidence of improved public understanding, increasing mainstream interest, and the emergence of startups that are building practical solutions using the blockchain technology in Nigeria today, however, all these cannot be considered to be true development until the learning institutions are carried along in a structured and sustainable manner.”

They are beginning to think outside the box and see real value in emerging technology as Blockchain. With the National Hackathon, we can look forward to mind-blowing innovations.”
